Chance the Rapper is bringing the holiday fun to an otherwise not-so-jolly year with his Chi-Town Christmas virtual concert film.
The festive special, which pays tribute to Chance’s favorite childhood Christmas movies and TV sitcoms, follows the release of his new joint album with Jeremih, Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama: The Gift That Keeps on Giving.
The one-hour virtual holiday concert film, written and directed by Chance with cinematography by Keith Walker, will feature performances of the songs on the project.

The Merry Christmas Lil’ Mama: The Gift That Keeps on Giving features two new original songs from Chance, “The Return” and “Who’s To Say.”
Chi-Town Christmas will be released on YouTube and Instagram on Friday (Dec. 18) at 9 p.m. ET/8 p.m. CT, and in VR on Oculus to give fans a unique virtual concert experience.
